My tangle pattern: K-Ning
At a friend's house, I came across a chair upholstered with caning, and decided to turn the pattern into a tangle.
I keep thinking I've got it--I know how to 'look' at patterns and see. And then I could slap myself silly when I discover how far I have yet to go.
I slaved over this pattern, trying to come up with simple steps. Over and over, I tried different starts, like I was playing chess. Finally, I decided it was too complex. I could see and draw the pattern myself, but it was too difficult to break down.
Then I was looking through the zentangle group and admiring some well-done 'Cadent'. BLaa-A---MMMM!!!
This pattern is practically a variation of Cadent! The last zentangle newsletter (http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs023/1101168872594/archive/1103593650371.html) even featured variations of Cadent, yet it took me DAYS! to see the similiarity.
Well, I think the steps are easy now, and there is tons of room for variation. Especially if you've done Cadent.
Let me know what you think.
